The Need to Know
The current tussle in the courts between the Government and the press may have implications far beyond the relationship between politicians and the media.
There are arguments about the public's right to know what government is doing in its name, and about the essential ingredients of an open society. Where should the line be drawn between freedom of expression and the security of the state? Who should draw it: the Government, Parliament or the courts?

When Alan Sillitoe 's screen adaptation of his own novel was first released in 1960, audiences felt that British movies had finally grown up - with Albert Finney thumbing his nose at authority, a new kind of hero was born. But

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
